Athletic Highlights: In the Tigers' first regatta of the spring season, Bruggeling's leadership and drive throughout the days leading up to and on race day proved to be vital as the weather conditions were not optimal. Bruggeling coxed the Varsity 8 boat to what was a close race early, but which the Tigers were able to edge ahead and continue to widen the gap to finish with an eight second win over a Northeastern University team that had a stellar fall racing season, finishing fifth at the Head of the Charles Regatta.
